Between August 31 and September 4, Auctions America by RM held its second annual Auburn Fall Collector Car Weekend, gathering over 43,000 car enthusiasts from around the world. The event was a big success, with more than 60.5% of all lots sold, raising over $18.5 million in total sales. The auction showed some 1,200 cars, 80 motorcycles and a number of vintage memorabilia to people from ten countries around the world, including Japan, Sweden, Australia and Germany. Thirty-five states from the U.S. were also represented at the auction.

The President of Auctions America by RM, Mr. Donnie Gould, declared himself thrilled with the results of the sale, and here are the top six reasons for his happiness.

  1. 1936 Auburn 852 SC Boattail – sold for $396,000
  2. 1934 Auburn Twelve Salon Phaeton – sold for $292,600
  3. 1953 Cadillac Eldorado – sold for $280,500

  5. 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro – sold for $176,000
  6. 1954 Buick Skylark – sold for $176,000

The weekend program also included one of the largest Midwest car corrals and swap meets, with vendors representing 31 states across the U.S. and a total of 1,600 spaces sold.

Besides cars, Auctions America also presented its first extensive collection of vintage motorcycles. Two of them dominated the event: a 1917 Indian Twin which went for $31,472 and a 1930 Excelsior Super-X Streamliner which fetched $33,600. The Head of Auctions America’s division of vintage motorcycles, Mr. Glenn Bator, said “We are very happy with the results from our debut motorcycle offering in Auburn. (…) From a marketing perspective, it was great to introduce Auburn to the motorcycle world, and we look forward to building on this year’s results in 2012”.

Auctions America also donated a celebrity-autographed Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe to support a non-profit organization in Fort Wayne, called Turnstone. The organization offers recreational, therapy and wellness programs to empower people with disabilities.
